Upgraded via Avast 7 not long ago. All running okay for now and all the settings which I tweaked are there. No conflict with the Comodo Firewall so far. Thank you.

When I was using V8 with Comodo Firewall I couldn't get any streaming updates. Do you get them?

Is this a issue on server side!?

Everything is smooth here..Everytime I invoke the update in v8 it says up to date then it says v7 is latest.  ???

Edit: this situation was resolved after a repair from control panel.

... I think the Internet Security download link is corrupt. Each time I install it, it gives an error. I've downloaded it 3 different times now and cleared my cache.

Just upgraded to the final and it's working fine so far!

Has the uninstall tool been updated as well on the old location?

Btw...for any interested DE users...we translated the releases notes for 8.0.1482 in German language.
Feel welcome to also visit the German Avast Community Forums for support and discussions with other security specialists as well as beginners!

Yeah, I got the same notice on the program update. Guess it is the servers.

Windows 7 64-Bit here. Streaming updates are enabled but how do you check for sure if you get them? Any specific log?

Updated to 8.0.1482 this morning. So far all ok on Windows XP P4 @ 1.8Ghz and 512MB RAM
I do not use the browser plug-ins and I check for updates myself to most programs.
The new interface is somewhat "Bland" ... we need a couple of skins to pick from.
Also the update did not carry over my Exclusions List .. I had to redo them manually.
Otherwise, it seems fine.
Dell Dimension 8200 P4 1.8Ghz Windows XP PRO SP3
Avast Free Antivirus 18.8.2356
Toshiba Satellite C855-S5347 Celeron B830 1.8Ghz

Avast Free Antivirus 20.4.2410 Build 20.4.5312.578

The Internet Security installer isn't working for me. Tried on 2 different machines.
